Urinalysis

Urinalysis refers the scientific analysis of urine.  It involves the physical and chemical evaluation of the urine.  Changes in the urine are used to detect problems such as urinary tract infections, protein loss in the urine that might provide a diagnosis or lead the veterinarian to run other tests.  Urine samples can be collected at home in a clean container or collected at the clinic by the veterinarian or technician.
